Events — Chicago to Rockford
Thank you to all who attended the public information meetings held during September 2023 in the communities of Belvidere, Elgin, Huntley and Rockford. More than 200 people attended and participated in meaningful conversations with IDOT staff at these meetings. Additionally, written comments showing interest in this important project have been received, through both in person and online forums. This first series of public information meetings offered community members along the corridor an opportunity to meet the project team and learn about the Chicago to Rockford Intercity Passenger Rail Program. Exhibit boards and a presentation were available for viewing at the public meetings. The presentation can be viewed below.
As additional engagement opportunities become available, they will be posted to this page and also announced through future newsletters, direct outreach, and coordination with local officials and community-based organizations who will be asked to assist in promoting public involvement activities.
